Clinical Significance of Internal Friction Connection and Micro-Threads in Implant-Supported Prostheses: A Literature Review

Received: 13 August 2020;  Published: 17 December 2020;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2004024


A connection structure using both a screw and friction is advantageous to secure an abutment to an implant. Understanding the biomechanics of the implant-abutment connection is necessary for the long-term clinical survival of a dental implant with decreased complications. The internal co [...]

The Effect of Curing Temperature on the Morphology and Electro-Optical Properties of a Flexible UV-Cured Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC)

Received: 11 October 2020;  Published: 08 December 2020;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2004023


In this work, the experimental data on flexible PDLC films at the industrial scale and the effect of cure temperature (Tc) on the morphology and electro-optical properties of a UV-cured PDLC system via polymer-induced phase separation (PIPS) method were studied. Under constant UV radiation intebsity [...]

Mechanical and Rheological Properties of 3D Printable Cement Composites

Received: 29 July 2020;  Published: 23 October 2020;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2004022


Additive manufacturing is a recent revolution in the construction field since cementitious materials became printable. This extrusion technique has enabled the construction of very complex geometry with a reduction in costs, time and labour interventions. This study aims to evaluate the possibility [...]
